Good afternoon friends. Yeasayer bring you (via Stereogum) their new remix of Tegan and Sara’s “Closer.” From the very start you will recognize Yeasayer’s electric touch. The original is found on T&S’s Heartthrob. Listen below!
Yeasayer have a handful of festival dates coming up! You can see them at Coachella, Governors Ball and Ultra Music Festivals! Details HERE.
Listen up! Yeasayer stopped by Philadelphia’s WXPN for a live in-studio performance and interview with David Dye on World Cafe. The four-song set includes “Longevity, “Demon Road,” “Blue Paper” and an especially grooving take of “Henrietta.” All songs are from their August 2012 release, Fragrant World. Songs and interview available HERE.
“…the band’s latest album, Fragrant World, marks a departure: Density is no longer the name of the game. With its (relatively) spare arrangements, Fragrant World is less about stacking lots of pretty sounds on top of one another, and more about tightening the focus on the individual elements of each song.” – Dave Dye, World Cafe
Yeasayer stopped by WFUV’s The Alternate Side to perform four songs off their recently released Fragrant World. In addition to the songs, they chat with host Russ Borris about everything from Bruce Springsteen to Paul Ryan. The set includes “Blue Paper,” Longevity,” “Demon Road” and “Folk Hero Schtick.” Watch all four songs in our video playlist above. The interview and session, while now available at TAS, will also air on WNYE 91.5FM at 11:00 AM EDT on Friday, September 14.
Yeasayer play NYC’s Rumsey Field tonight with Tanlines and Daedelus and then they’re off to Europe! Dates HERE.
Do you have a secret wish to see what the Yeasayer dudes would look like as old men, skeletons even? Well, that’s kinda weird, but here’s your wish come true. Premiering at Vevo, Yeasayer’s new “Longevity” video features Anand, Chris, Ira and Cale doing what they do best – performing, with a surprising twist thrown in. Watch above to see what happens.
Yeasayer are currently on tour, zipping around North America to bring you the awesome experience that is their live show. Have you heard about or seen their new Creators Project-designed crystalline light and stage environment? It’s pretty spectacular. Paste caught them with the new set-up while they were in Chicago; check out the photos HERE. Tour dates and ticket links HERE.
